Minlove

ml-home.gif

Minlove is an independent resource and presentation platform for projects within the context of minimal electronic music. Established in 2003 by Christian Meinke, designer and artist based in Berlin, Germany - Minlove stands for passion for a specific musical style ranging from minimal techno & house to clicks&cuts and various forms of abstract dance music.

This Weblog documents his personal research for innovative and unique projects within this musical context. It describes the constantly changing connection between minimal electronics, techno, influences of popular music genres and cultural as well as technological developments.

The main interest is to present innovative projects and to connect people within these fields of activity - promoting a growing international community using the possibilities of the net. Often, exciting projects gather dust in dark drawers, unnoticed and unheard. Minlove is looking for these hidden treasures and offers space for clever and unique ideas and gives an opportunity to promote projects, labels and records.


minlove : netlabel

The minlove netlabel was founded in december 2003 by Christian Meinke. Until 2004 he used the project mainly to publish own experiments ranging from abstract electronics to more house-influenced minimal stuff.

In the second half of 2005 he reconsidered the concept and orientation of the netlabel and decided to splitted our output into two main categories. While the 1st section is exclusivly reserved for releases that are smoothly attached to our series of label.showcases, the 2nd category is open for everyone and tries to showcase primarily projects that try to mix different musical genres, ranging from Minimal Techno & House, Dub- as well as Funk-influenced forms up to glitchy clicks&cuts elements, to create a fresh and unique sound.

Minlove is always looking for artists who fit our musically approach and likes to encourage you to submit your demo material. Please send your demo and a brief description via snail.mail or send an e-mail with corresponding weblinks if you like to provide your material online.

For their second release Minlove invited london based imprint Süd Electronic to submit new material that would best reflect the label's vision and output. This compilation offers a very diverse and highly individual exploration of minimal electronic music - ranging from highly rhythmical, african influenced textures, to the dubbier end of the spectrum, the icy reduced and yet quirky melodies and spacious cinematic meanderings.

Our last release for 2005 features Milnor Modern, a refreshing and truly promisingly project based in Dessau, Germany; initiated and crafted by Nils Scheibe aka Treplec. Milnor has a strong focus on a style called "minimal.deep.freakin´techno" - a surprisingly concise and appropriate description that applies well to the labels output. Also the tracks on this exquisite mini compilation are taking the listener on a truly intense and freaked out mission between subtle, yet funky grooves...
